Belly dancing is a rare and beautiful form of art that has been around for centuries. Originating from somewhere in the Middle East, this traditional form of dance comes in many different variations!
While I’m sure most of us have seen our fair share of belly dancing performances, I can almost guarantee you’ve never seen a performance quite like this one. Sadie Marquardt is a world-renowned belly dancer. Since her first appearance as a ‘Rising Star’ on BD-TV Vol. II in 2004 she has become one of the most sought-after performers and teachers of belly dance. She has produced dozens of instructional DVDs and was even on ‘America’s Got Talent’!
Her unique style and incredible talent make her captivating to watch. In this particular performance, she starts off with her back to the crowd. When the music starts she turns around and to the surprise of everyone — she’s pregnant! According to some of the comments on this video, around this time she was about six months pregnant.
I don’t know about you, but when I was six months pregnant I could barely walk – let alone belly dance! She moves across the stage with so much grace and rhythm it really is breathtaking to watch.
Kudos to her for getting on that stage and doing what she loves, while flaunting that baby bump! I think it’s amazing to see!
